Princeton seniors Alagappan and Malhotra win Rhodes Scholarships

Dec. 2, 2019

Princeton University seniors Serena Alagappan and Ananya Agustin Malhotra have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships for graduate study at the University of Oxford. They are among 32 American recipients of the prestigious fellowships, which fund two to three years of graduate study at Oxford. The students will begin their studies at Oxford in September 2020. In a statement, Elliot Gerson, American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust, said, “This year’s American Rhodes Scholars — independently elected by 16 committees around the country meeting simultaneously — once again reflect the extraordinary diversity that characterizes and strengthens the United States.”
